Gone fishin'.

HAROLD HUNTER, THE LEGEND OF NEW YORK LEGENDS, WAS found dead in the East Village housing project where he grew up and came of age. The cause of death was reportedly a heart attack. Overflow crowds attended both his funeral and farewell party at KCDC in Brooklyn. Befitting the star he was, Hunter was laid to rest attired in his black fedora hat, wearing silver Nikes and holding his skateboard. The New York Times published a moving obituary penned by Corey Kilgannon that marked his passing. A slew of photos at his service depicted Harold entertaining numerous celebrities, supermodels, and society heiresses. The likes of Harold Hunter will never pass this way again.

If the cover photo wasn't clue enough, we'll tell you that Jim Greco has officially parted with Vans to join Ellington and Antwuan on the white-hot Supra shoe program. Signature kick posthaste, dogs.

Erie Koston, possibly the finest street styler of his generation, has signed on to the Independent trucks camp, where he will supervise the design and construction of the first low-profile Indy. Recent testing sessions at the HP dojo with Phelper indicate that prototypes are already going through the vigorous rigors needed to support a champion of such magnitude.

In other Indy news, Tony "TNT" Trujillo is slated for a signature colorway, possible black and blue. Meanwhile, Venture is all set to go endorsement crazy, issuing signature trucks for Stevie Williams, Zered Basset, PJ Ladd, and Stefan Janoski.

Word is Diego Buechieri will now be doing his gliding and turning on Furys while the heavily talked-about Euro-ripper Lucas Puig will catch hella air on Autobahns. Colin Provost will mourn his abandoned vert career while street skating in Emerica's. Close does count: Thrasher website, Lizard King, ultra/beyondo rail. Check it out.
